Personal Finance Utopia Reboot 2.3 Version 7 Edition X42 Chapter #5

space shuttleIt seems like just yesterday I sat down to write Personal Finance Utopia Reboot after letting the cobwebs accumulate on this site for about 1.5 months. I indicated a renewed vigor and dedication to Personal Finance Utopia. That was 3 months ago and I only managed a couple of articles during that time. If I was any better at saying one thing and then doing another I’d be a politician!

So, what’s the deal then? Well, it’s pretty much the same story as what I shared last time. At the forefront remained the struggles with job burnout. Instead of using that to motivate myself to keep this site running strong, I let it do the opposite. Couple the drag of job disillusionment with how busy the holiday season was and I simply lost momentum.

How will things be different this time around with yet another relaunch? Well, for one I’ve already got a start on posting (see Your Fear of Failure Defines You). Secondly, I’ve got another job lined up and in the works. Unfortunately, it’s only a lateral move within the same area of the same company. Thus, the possibility exists that the job burnout and long hours continue. However, at least it will be a change of pace and something new to try. Hopefully, it allow a more reasonable balance so that I can give everyone out there what they really want: more spectacular, thought provoking, top quality articles on Personal Finance Utopia!

Now, if only the Yakezie Challenge would change the 2 times a week posting requirement to once every 3 months! I’d be a member already ;-)

I’m trying to drive up my Twitter followers, Facebook Likes, and E-mail subscriptions. You can also follow along via Google+, BlogLovin, or RSS. Please help me reach my goals by selecting one or all of these options!

      Deal! Although to keep up with your prolific pace, Sam, I’d probably have to resort to watered down, mass produced articles like “Save With These 6 Ways to Tie Your Shoes: Recognize the Diversity” or “The Sun Rises in the East and Sets in the West – How You Can Invest in the Sun for a 6000% return”!!

        Haha, OK. But I think you are selling yourself short.

        I only post 3 times a week usually… I want to post more, but I resist b/c I want the posts to breathe a little. The end result has been longer posts though, which has worked well.

          Yeah, I think it just seems like you’re a prolific poster since you have a large archive from the past ~5 years on FS. Plus, as you mention, FS posts are very beefy…so each one of your articles is equivalent to 2 or 3 really. So, in that sense, you are prolific!
